Subscribe to Screwfix newsletter (with a seperate account) and every newsletter contains a 10% off £50 order. So add some cheapo nails etc. to take it just over £50 and get it for £45.

Also, i second the good news that Site is manufactured/service related to Makita.

Bought this last week for £50. On-line only not in their shops. Its a very nice drill. Charge up actually takes about 20 minutes. Three batteries is a bonus. Like all these cordless appliances the battery goes flat very quickly if you start to thrash it. Its very very similar to the Makita [url]www.screwfix.com/prods/55827/Power-Tools/Cordless-Drills/Makita-6281DWPE3-14-4V-Cordless-Drill-Driver;jsessionid=03RRMK5Y2O5YOCSTHZOCFFY[/url] which is £169 - phew!

Be aware that its a NiCD battery drill - the newer models now have Li-Ion - which last longer between charges, and avoids the "memory" effect that will eventually kill your battery. However for £50 its a bargain!

Can I ask a dumb question - what do the torque settings on the drill do?
I bought a drill from Homebase a couple of weeks ago and whatever setting I put it on, I can't see what difference it makes?

Thanks.

Its like on a torque wrench - the turning strength only goes so high until the drill bit doesn't turn any more (and you hear a loud clicking noise). For example - If you look in car maintenance manuals you'll see it says wheel nuts should be tightened up to x newton metres of torque. It allows you to tighten to a safe level without being too loose or so tight you strip off the threads.

I have an electric screwdriver with a toque setting and I find it useful, when driving screws into plastic or chipboard, to set it to the lowest setting so that it doesn't drive in so hard it cracks the plastic or strips out the hole. So I think the torque setting would be useful on the driver function.

...and BTW - in response to the previous comment I was not suggesting you could get a Li-ION drill for £50, but that this may be the reason why they are reducing all their NiCDs - as they will be phased out soon.

Great price for what is essentially a Makita drill with 3 batteries and 20 min charger.

Mine turned up yesterday. This is a really good drill - it is the Makita in a red body. Very smooth, powerful, quick to charge. Great deal - thank you.

Just signed up online. Does the 10% come via an email or the post?

Cheers
